    My Aiptek AHD has the same problem of not being recognised (there was no automatic recognition software supplied; it's just drag and drop from a browser). I've tried it with another pc's and nothing... until I open the view finder, where on my pc restarts and compains about new hardware being a problem. Worked fine yesterday...

Did you check your "my computer" folder? It should be with the public drives. If you AREN'T on a PC it would be in finder, next to the "Hard disk" (this will have a new name, but it should look like a disc drive) the camera will most likely be represented by a white drive with an eject button next to it.

The pc doesnt seems to detect my cam like it needs a driver or something i plug the firewire and nothing happens


This can be caused by several things. One common problem is a faulty cable. If you have another Firewire/1394 cable, try that.

A second problem is using the wrong cable. I don't remember if the VX2000 takes still photos, but if it does, many Sony camcorders have a USB connection for transferring the still photos. However, the USB connection will NOT transfer video.

A third problem is drivers. This is usually only a problem on older Windows computers. By older, I mean Windows 98, Windows ME, and the first generation of Windows XP (the first generation is "service pack 1"). However, if you have Windows XP and have done updates, then you probably have the correct driver. If you haven't done updates, then you need to get the update for Firewire/1394.

Finally, if you haven't tried re-booting the computer, that very often is needed -- especially with older (more than five years old) -- computers. Even with modern computers, the computer will often get into a state where it won't recognize peripherals. I recommend shutting off the computer completely, disconnecting the camcorder, and then turning off the camcorder. Then, re-start the computer and after it has booted, turn on the camcorder and after it is on, connect the Firewire/1394 cable between the camcorder and the computer.

Hopefully the camcorder connector is OK. I have broken several Sony Firewire connectors, and it costs about $300 to have them repaired.

When i connect my camcorder through the firewire


Hello my friend, yes had same problem, I had hair when it happened to me, now bald hi hi, but you need to go into the PC Control panal, go to System settings, look down a long list eg Sound, Drives, Mouse, etc look at Cameras, if your camera is in the list highlight it, and delete driver with clicking you mouse on it, come out of control panal on PC, REMOVE ALL camera cables from PC, turn off your PC in normal way.
Now when your PC is OFF plug your fire-wire cable in camera, then to the PC, turn camera on, and THEN turn your PC on (MUST BE LAST THING YOU DO) then once your PC is fully rebooted and you are in windows your camera is seen all done.
Take care, all the best.

Cant download to dvd


Hope the following helps. I had the same problem and then a friend recommended that when you plug in the camcorder into your PC, press the "DVD copy" button on the unit and also when it comes up on your view finder. The video cam suite program automtaically comes up on PC screen and you can then proceed. My problem know is that I also used the cam corder to record video footage on an SD card but the software only allows copying of the motion videos stored on the hard drive. Does anybody have any suggestions how I can get around this without having to pay $60 per hour of footage for the professional camera places to do it?

Can not connect mini dv camcorder to sony vaio laptop


there are many post on various sites that state the same as you ihave the same prob with a sony which i paid £999,00 for and it wont connect i have been researching this problem for months on and of and cannot get any further, what may help you is some information that i have discovered , there are diffrent vers of firwire difrent baud rates this could be one reason for non detection ms sp1 has a diffrent ver to sp2 it is not easy to reinstall sp1 1394 as you need to diable cabbinet files to stop the reloading of the deleted sp2 speed 1394,ther are a few hotfixes avilable from ms on xp not suer about vista also if you plug a faster 1394 device into your machine it could diasble the slower ones , and now for the the killer any manufactur that incorporates 1394 in ther package has to purchase an extremly expensive license and microsoft are heavy into the development of usb stuf and are not concentrating on 1394 hence very little or no support, the only thing you could try is download virtual pc free from ms download site and install the op sys that pertains to the age of the cam good luck

Panasonic NVGS60 mini dv camcorder


Hi!
I have had the same experience with the same laptop. In my case, I went to Add New Hardware in Control Panel, and had my laptop automatically search for the connected camera. From there, it was automatic.
If this doesn't work, try restarting your laptop with the connections in place. Then repeat the above described procedure.
Hope this helps!

How to view on tv


HDTV: grab the "HD out" cables (That's the Blue-orange-green cable) and plug them into the (front may have a "video 2/3 section")  the video 2 (video one probably has your game station, or DVD player if not, plug it into the "video 1" section) and the screen on the camera (may or may not, mine does, my friend's does) turn off, that's OK. Make sure that before you plug it in you've selected AV OUT, not IN. Change the input mode on the tv to match the plug in area's name. Go to menu (you may have to navigate from the tv screen) then "my works" and you're ready to go :) 
Standard TV: Grab the Standard-def cable (red-yellow-white) cable and plug it into one of the available Red-Yellow-White ports on the TV, then the rest will be the same as for an HDTV.
hope this answer helped, sincerely: (youtube user) Animation508

Gr-dvx7 jvc lcd screen is just white?


If the view finder shows the same white display. You probably have display circuit problem in the camera. Faulty CCD chip usually shows Black screen so it probably board problem or a connector problem. If you see an image through view finder then you may have defective connection from board to LCD assy. Either way it need to be looked at by a trained technician. Good luck.
